[Condor-users] counting licenses

So I sent this out before, but didn't get any takers. It's really important for us and seems like a solved problem so if you know and answer or have an idea don't be afraid to speak up.

I have 10 machines, each with 2 cpus that can run our licensed software for which we currently have 2 licenses. The two licenses are limited by machine, not by process, so if one license is consumed by one machine it can run the software also on the second cpu without consuming another license. In this way two machines can run 4 processes with two licenses.

Any ideas on a classAd expression that would cover software licensing in this way, so that we can run on any of the machines that are capable of running the software. Even a general way to count licenses per process would be helpful.
